    He was rarely totally hard in his movies, but when he was I would say 11". He died before viagra was developed. As for his own word on it, they say he was a total liar and his word couldnt be relied upon on anything.

    new guys are not 10 or 11, maybe close to 10 (for a few) and johnny wad was not 13, maybe closer to 9.5 or maybe 10 when really hard, which was rare (especially late in his career) because of all the alcohol and drug abuse.

    I read somewhere that he was actually 9.75"
    So why was he advertised as being 14" or 13" or whatever?
    As if being close to 10" wasn't big enough.
    Apparently Chad Hunt is not as big as he's supposed to be
    given that he is a shorter guy and it looks bigger on him.
    He's prolly in the 8"-9" range.

    It's important to remember that porn is about creating a fantasy rather than an anatomy lesson and it's in the interests of the performer and the studios to exaggerate features to create interest and demand. JH was a big guy, but was probably less than 10". I'm inclined to believe the 9.75" report that I've read from several sources. He was certainly nowhere near the 12" - 14" sometimes claimed for him.

    It was not just the size that made his cock so appealing. It is also the shape, color, and thickness. Almost perfect !

    Remember, porn was much more taboo back then and there were not nearly as many people performing in it. I'm sure that while Holmes was probably the biggest in the industry back in the day, today he has been surpassed by a number of other guys.

    I don t know to which new porn stars that you are referring.
    There are only a handfull true 10-inchers.
    And John was in that time frame ( without viagra ) one of the best porn performers. But he was not 10". At his best maybe 9.5", but mostly 9".
    The new porn stars that I see on avg are less than John, somewhere all in the range from 7.5" upto 9".

    From what I remember.

    One of his wives was interviewed/mentioned in Rolling Stone magazine some years ago, and she explained the time John came into the room after measuring himself, saying he was 10 inches long. Her reply was something like ... "Great John." with a bit of sarcasm. She knew he was huge, it was just a number, as if the actual size held no interest to her.

    I knew someone now deceased (as are most who were on set with John) and that person was best described as extremely truthful by nature. John Holmes in truth was according to this individual just was under 9" in length. This measurement was done by joking on a set and discretely marking a soda pop bottle and measuring later. What made Holmes was not that his penis was that large. (You will notice a conspicuous absence of other nude males around him in any camera angle where comparison is possible.) The photographers and studios that used or used up Holmes were the best of their time to play his greatest assets off of each other to create an illusion. Most of the girls with which he had sex were smaller in height and dimensions than average. Camera angles were carefully chosen to make other objects look small when in the camera with his penis. The largest asset that he had was that he was so plain and unremarkable in every other aspect of his life. This would focus all attention of his watchers or fans on his penis and that in and of itself was one of the ways it was done. Studios involved with Holmes made a great deal of money by perpetuating a myth. There are people on this board that with little doubt larger than Holmes was in reality. The main differences is that they do not have his professional photographers, production and publicity staffing and more importantly they are smart enough to not want into that business.

    Rent the movie "Wonderland", about his alleged involvement with the Wonderland Murders. Great film. Even better individual performances from the cast.

    John Holmes is famous today because he was the first very well-hung man in porn, when there weren't many performers. Today, I think he'd be just a drop in the bucket.
